With so many lakes in the Adirondacks, it's only natural to want to get out on the water! While motorboats and wave runners can't be used on all Adirondack lakes, they can give you that iconic summer experience you're looking for. Don't have your own boat? Don't worry! Adirondack Boat Rental Company, a new member of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, can have a rental delivered to you anywhere in the Adirondacks.
